Couldn't resist two April visits to Spring Lake NJ and The Ocean House. Off-season the beach is extraordinary, especially when you are the only ones walking the miles of sand. The trip from the chaos of NYC is only an hour and half and you are in another world. After a bracing walk on the beach and vegging out on...

I wish I had read past all the five star reviews to get to L.G.'s, a few pages in. I think we stayed in the same room. Bed was positively horrific. Both our backs hurt the next day. The fact that this was mentioned in an earlier review tells me that the hosts are not listening (TIP: try to sleep...

We try to get away for our anniversary each year. We like the beach at that time of the year as it is quieter & not over crowded. The Ocean House is located only a block from the beach and walking distance to the town and the lake. The room is quiant and the bed is comfortable. Breakfast was made...

My daughter and I have been coming to the Ocean House for more than 10 years. We love the homey breakfasts - getting downstairs in time to snag a table on the porch and lingering over coffee. Then we head to the beach, taking beach chairs and umbrellas that are all piled up in the back drive waiting to go....

The Ocean House is a great B&B with a very large, beautiful wraparound porch that is a great place to relax and enjoy the well maintained landscape. The beach is only about a block away. The interior is nice and bikes (admittedly pretty old) are included at no extra charge. The food was good too as was all of the...

My husband & I had an amazing two day stay at the Ocean House. Our hosts, Jared & Colleen were amazing - what wasn't to love - beautifully decorated, an inviting wrap around porch, coffee/tea, infused water & afternoon cookies in the dining room. We had an adorable king room all a block from the beach. We totally enjoyed taking...

We enjoyed three lovely nights at the Ocean House. The staff was wonderful and attentive. The accomdations are well maintained with good wifi, computer/printer accessibility, tea and coffee always available, refrigerator, bikes, clean comfy rooms and a beautiful wide wrap around porch. On a rainy evening after dining in town we relaxed on the porch to watch a movie on...

The ocean house is a large inn one block from the ocean and a short walk along the lake into town. I stayed in an annex king bed room. The annex offers a separate entrance and immediate access to the parking and street. Our room was nicely appointed with excellent bedding and decorations. I have also stayed in the main...

We had a wonderful three-day stay in the Ocean House. Colleen and Jared and all the staff are friendly and willing to help. The Ocean House is a block from the boardwalk and we enjoyed an early morning walk along it before a scrumptious breakfast buffet every day. The room was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed. There were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is our quest and desire to preserve and enhance the magic that is, The Ocean House. Just one short block from the beach and an enjoyable walk along the lake to Spring Lake's shopping district. Enjoy a run on the Spring Lake boardwalk or bike about the town to view the majestic homes and breath taking landscapes. If relaxation is your desire, there is no finer porch to read that book you haven't had a chance to get to, or have that glass of wine with your spouse before enjoying one of the many fine restaurants in our area. We are happy to help with reservations and any other travel needs you may have? ... more   less
